J Using the Self-Timer
To use the self-timer, press the selector down (h) and choose from the following options:
T (OFF) Self-timer off.
o (AUTO RELEASE) The shutter is released automatically when the camera detects a human portrait subject
facing the camera. Use for portraits of babies.
S (10 SEC)
The shutter is released ten seconds after the shutter button is pressed. Use for self-portraits.
The self-timer lamp on the front of the camera lights when the timer starts and begins to
blink shortly before the photo is taken.
R (2 SEC)
The shutter is released two seconds after the shutter button is pressed. Use to reduce blur
caused by the camera moving when the shutter button is pressed. The self-timer lamp will
blink as the timer counts down.
If I is selected for burst mode (P 41), the camera will record burst of five photographs when the timer expires,
improving your chances of getting the desired results in portraits taken with the self-timer.
